Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery ★★★½

Just like its predecessor, Glass Onion is a bit of tightly constructed fun and a showcase of some great performances. Its political angle won't tell you anything you don't already know, but it works (if only as a vehicle for catharsis). It actually manages to be pretty bitey until an "O captain, my captain" moment near the end (you know the one if you've seen it) that feels like a copout.

I just think the success of this I.P. is a testament to the fact that we need more colourful, stylised and overall fun commercial releases, whose humour doesn't rely on "meme potential", and feel written and performed by humans.
